Internet Broadcasting, a provider of digital publishing technology and services for local TV newsrooms, today introduced ibPublish 2, which it calls “the most advanced digital content management and publishing platform built for the TV broadcast industry and designed for the future of digital publishing.”

ibPublish 2 is a cloud-based architected solution that lets newsrooms produce news and information with fast distribution to mobile and social media channels.

The platform is already in production with Internet Broadcasting clients, who are being supported with services including planning, migration, training, best practices and custom development.

“Television broadcasters are seeking to leverage the investments and talents they devote to content development in new ways — so they can further strengthen their brand and engage their audiences,” said Elmer Baldwin, president-CEO of Internet Broadcasting. “ibPublish 2 responds by automating the publication process and supporting simultaneous publishing across mobile devices. That frees broadcasters to focus on their core competence — developing great local-news content — and helps make digital journalism profitable.”

The ibPublish 2 platform offers these features:

  • Dramatic simplification of digital publishing: Accelerates time to publish with high-powered tools for super users and simplified workflows for other contributors, enabling the entire organization to publish digital content.
Brand Connections
  • Superior user experience improves audience engagement: High-performing, fast-loading pages deliver exceptional user experience, while dynamic and contextual publishing capabilities extend engagement.
  • Genuinely integrated mobile and social: Fully integrated apps and mobile Web sites offers seamless multi-channel publishing, on-the-fly content and display changes, campaign management and social enabled by a robust suite of APIs.
  • Adaptive platform provides full spectrum of control: Publishers have complete control with fully customizable digital solutions and the ability to add new products — all enabled by the cloud-based platform.

ibPublish 2 incorporates software and services from technology partners, including  CoreMedia, a provider of Web content management (WCM) software; Kaltura, a video platform, providing video management, publishing, authoring, distribution and monetization solutions for media companies, enterprises, educational institutions and service providers; and Akamai, a cloud-based platform designed to help provide secure, high-performing user experiences on any device.

In addition, ibPublish 2 supports other technology and service partners in order to provide additional functionality and content such as national news, sports and weather.

“We have integrated technologies that form a development community aligned in the best interests of Internet Broadcasting clients and the market we serve,” Baldwin added. “This community reflects the efforts of hundreds of talented developers and engineers and is supported by a company that has been servicing TV broadcasters’ needs for more than 15 years.”

“Local publishers have arguably the most complex set of needs of any digital publisher,” said Roger Keating, SVP, digital media, for Hearst Television and an Internet Broadcasting director. “Given the volume of content, the number of iterations, and the very distributed nature of what we're publishing, we demand a lot from a publishing system — and the tasks for which we are looking to a digital publishing platform to support us have grown in complexity.

“Internet Broadcasting has taken on the challenge of fully retooling their publishing platform to meet our needs — not just for this year, but for the next decade.”

    The new CBS suspense series Stalker is like a PSA for the paranoid. Stalker” works hard to milk the kind of culture-wide paranoia that also fuels other shows like Homeland and Person of Interest. The world is a scary place in the 21st century, and we’ve become a nation of people waiting for other shoes to drop. The leads, Maggie Q and McDermott are competent, if not terribly interesting actors, and that about sums up the series as well.

    Fans of Scandal, ABC's unhinged guilty pleasure soap, will likely revel in its new companion series, How to Get Away With Murder, the season's most enjoyably ludicrous, fast-moving new drama. The pilot  grabs viewers by their lapels and sprints forward, introducing a wealth of characters and plots. Murder is not by any stretch transcendent TV, but it is great, gonzo fun, a breakneck-paced, well-made primetime soap that, if future episodes are as entertaining as the pilot, may easily become viewers' new TV addiction.

    As is almost always the case, there are some good shows arriving this fall. Few, however, seem special — and fewer still appear to have the potential to change the TV landscape. ABC's Black-ish is one of those few. A throwback to the All in the Family days when sitcoms linked saying something funny with saying something meaningful, Black-ish explores what it means to be black in America today. Perfection is rare in a sitcom pilot and Black-ish doesn't achieve it. While the big set pieces are very funny, there are too many lulls between them. But odds are you'll come away believing the show will get better and hoping it does — because TV will be all the better for it. And that would be great.

    Our latest week-long national history lesson begins as PBS star filmmaker Ken Burns schools us in The Roosevelts: An Intimate History. Make room on the DVR, this one's addicting. The entire 14-hour, seven-night experience of Burns' latest opus is an engaging and at times surprising marathon, running through the chronology of Theodore, Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt, and touching on social movements, technological changes and, not least, wars and methods of warfare that shaped their lives. And vice versa. The trove of photographs is so engaging, the family dynamics so curious, the overall story so epic in nature, it's a rewarding investment of time.

    As an architect of Big Brother, Dutch reality-TV pioneer John de Mol would be a good candidate to sue the producers of Fox's Utopia, if only he wasn’t one of them. The show’s billing as a “social experiment” quickly dissipates amid the assemblage of chiseled Type-AAA personalities and archetypes tasked with carving out an existence amid the wilds of Santa Clarita, Calif. (a locale Fox has the chutzpah to dub “five acres of paradise”). Scheduled to run twice weekly for a year, the protracted time commitment is just another hurdle for the pioneers — and network — to clear.
